obama won here over john mccain. it was a little bit of a change, because dixville notch has been very fond of republicans. barack obama was the first democrat to get the nod here since hubert humphrey in 1968. though tonight we're looking to see what dixville notch will do in this election cycle. it's only going to take a couple minutes to go through the ten ballots and then post the result. >> i heard it's like a big competition down there in this area of northern new hampshire. because there's a flotation classified as a town and this dixville notch is a precinct. but dixville notch wins by being smaller, is that the idea? >> that's right. they only have ten votes to count and will post their results much more quickly. that's why they're able to hold on to the title of the first voting town in the united states. i keep looking over my shoulder here. this isn't going to take by just a minute or two. and when they do, they'll stop and announce -- >> david, can i ask a question? how long does it take to count ten votes? >> reporter: well, you have to remember there's a ballot here with
